Watch Matthew McConaughey React to the New Star Wars Trailer

Looks like the force is with him alright alright alright alright...

Oskar Arneson, a filmmaker from Iceland, is dominating Reddit with a mashup of Matthew McConaughey’s character in Interstellar and the new teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If you are a Star Wars fan, you probably had a similar reaction: mouth agape, a big grin, tears streaming down your face, one hand raised as if you are simultaneously waving to the people on screen and giving them a high-five, before promptly losing it at the end when Han Solo (Harrison Ford) says, “Chewie, we’re home” to the Wookiee.

That Moment When a Senator’s Phone Plays ‘Let It Go’ at a Hearing

Even members of Congress can't let it go!

While Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack was testifying in front of the Senate Finance Committee Thursday, he was interrupted by Sen. Pat Roberts’s ringtone, which is “Let It Go” from Frozen.

Vilsack stopped talking and smiled while the 78-year-old Republican from Kansas tried to quickly turn off the device during this “Congress and U.S. Tariff Policy” hearing.

Looking at the cabinet member, Roberts said “just let it go,” prompting laughter from others in the room.

He tweeted that the ringtone is for his grandchildren, while also digging the current administration:

40-Pound Wolverine Chews Through Cage at Airport

Maybe he needed more leg room?

Being on a plane for hours can feel like being inside a cage. So it’s not too surprising that a 40-pound male wolverine named Kasper chewed through his metal cage at Newark International Airport Tuesday.

The New York Times reports that the animal flew in from Norway’s Kristiansand Zoo and was passing through Newark to go through U.S. customs and connect flights en route to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center.

While the animal did not actually escape (phew!), its growling did spook a representative from the wildlife conservation center, the Times reports.

But after all that fuss, when the Bronx Zoo provided a new cage, the wolverine did not want to make the switch, and had to be tranquilized for the transfer to happen.

In a video uploaded to YouTube video on Tuesday, you can see a fake news crew, delivery men, and people passing out chili flakes and parmesan cheese, not to mention the MTA official who said this car was being recognized for having the most courteous riders and the least amount of “man-spreading” violations. The pizza, however, seemed to be very real and looked very delicious.

Watch a Chimp Smack Down a Drone Like It’s No Big Deal

Maybe she was lashing out against "dronies"

While perched in a tree, a 23-year-old chimpanzee named Tushi smacked a drone with a stick, sending it spiraling to ground last Friday morning at the Royal Burgers’ Zoo in Arnhem, a city in the Netherlands.

The national television program Burgers’ Zoo Natuurlijk was planning to use the footage, according to a blog post on the zoo’s website.

A spokesperson told the Associated Press that the drone cost about $2,100, but the money does not seem to matter to zoo officials. They are more excited to talk about how this act of destruction proves “how intelligent” the primates are.

Talk about monkey business.
